How to Earn An Income From Home Blogging 1-2 Hours Per Day
I know there’s a lot of people out there that don’t have any real big money to invest in Internet Marketing Courses and just need an easy, simple way to Earn An Income From Home that actually works. If I was stripped of every nickel I had from my bank account and was given a budget of just $100.00 to start an Internet Business with, here’s what I would do.
First I would pick a Niche to get into that I was passionate about. Maybe you’ve been successful in the past selling Insurance. Or maybe you’re the top Real Estate Sales Person on your city. Or perhaps you are a Botanist and know everything someone would want to know about Flowers.
All of these niches have great Affiliate Programs. My point is you want to go into a niche that is easy for you to write about, one that is commercially viable and one that won’t give you writers block. Because whatever niche you choose, in order to become an authority in that niche, and in order to Earn An Income From Home in that niche, you’ll need to be prepared to do a lot of writing. The more the better. I will explain more later in this article.
I would then go and spend under $10.00 and purchase a domain name that you like, think others will like and that represents the Niche you want to be in. Then I would get low cost website hosting also under $10.00 per month. Then finally I would get Carl Ocab’s Ultimate Blogging Theme at $67.00. Right now you are still at under $100.00 and this is all you really need to invest to get started.
Earn An Income From Home Using This Proven Blueprint
After you get your Blog installed and working properly, the trick here is to write content and lots of it. Sure you can hire a ghost writer, but doing this will cost you money and if you know your niche chances are writing will be fun and natural. This is why I say it is so important to pick a Niche you really are passionate about.
Each day write 1-5 articles on your Niche Topic. My magic number I shoot for is 3 per day. First post them on your blog with pictures. You can review other companies or use the Google Keyword Research Tool and write articles based on Long-Tail Keywords, which are keyword phrases that are at least 2 words long.
If you were a botanist for example you might find public domain photos which are all over the place by the way, and post a picture of a different type of flower on each blog post you create and review every type of flower there is. This will make your blog posts much more attractive.
After you write your blog post, take that exact same post and write a description and author bio for it. Then submit this post to all of the major article directories that allow duplicate content. You are allowed 2 links in each author bio. Make sure one of them points directly to the blog post you just created. The other one can point to your main page or to a related affiliate program within that domain. Almost all of the major article directories currently accept duplicate content and if they don’t you’ll know, they usually tell you right on the submit form.
Once or twice per week find blogs on your niche topic and intelligently participate in the comments section. Let them know how much you know on the subject. Don’t just post one or two lines they will get deleted in almost all cases. Post a good 2-3 paragraphs and link them to your blog.
Don’t expect to see much in the way of sales activity until your blog gets to around 300 pages. This could vary by niche but this is the general rule. Remember by writing and submitting articles you are building momentum, and this takes some time to start. Our MLM Website averages about 800 Unique Visitors per day, and each article we write gets us about 1.5 unique visitors per day on average.
There are 2 main ways to monetize a blog. By monetizing it I mean making sure it is setup to make the most money possible from the traffic you are sending to it. One way is to get a free Google Adsense Account. Doing this takes 5 minutes and Carl Ocab’s Ultimate Blogging Theme makes it easy to setup Adsense on your blog.
The second way to monetize it is with Affiliate Programs. As you write your reviews and build out your blog, use the Simple Link Cloaker Plugin which is also free. Then hyperlink this URL about 3-5 times in every blog post and hyperlink your blog images. We’ve had great success sending people to Affiliate Sites using this method.
As you can probably tell by now learning how to Earn An Income From Home really isn’t about having a bunch of money up front to spend. In fact it really won’t help you much at all in the Blogging World. It’s more about consistently adding quality content to your blog and getting a steady supply of backlinks from the Article Directories and related blogs. Once your blog reaches 500 Unique Visitors per day or more, you can even request other Blog Owners in your same Niche to do Unique Content article swaps.
